We have a Pixhawk installed right now to simply show that all components work after removing our DJI A2 which we liked. The buyer may utilize Pixhawk flight controller or other flight controller of choice.
The Gryphon Dynamics 1400mm X8 is a heavy lifting UAS airframe engineered to perform extremely well in high winds with a comfortable payload capacity of 25lbs. It is perfect for carrying professional camera or sensory equipment.
The platform is capable lifting close to 50 lbs, however the maximum payload size carried to date with the platform for sale is 15 lbs. It is by far the most powerful airframe we have used. The aircraft has been flown less than 15 times and contains top of the line components. The arms are detachable which is an amazing feature – it takes about 2-3 minutes to attach all four arms, and less time to remove. There are multiple easy mounting points on the Gryphon frame, which is nice because we literally never had to drill a single hole for carrying of payload.
Everything is wired up and ready to install the flight controller of your choice (or Pixhawk which is also included). As for voltage requirements, we played around with this and found that 8S or 12S work best, depending on your need. We ran it with a set of two 6S 22k packs run in series, and sometimes ran two sets of 6S series pairs when flying with lighter payloads to double up on mAh’s and keep some mass under the aircraft.
Notes on the condition of the like new / lightly used aircraft:
We purchased this aircraft a little over a year ago for the purposes of carrying a ~15lb radar system in high altitude windy environments. We removed our DJI A2 flight controller and installed a pixhawk as a placeholder just to have something onboard that will show all components functioning correctly with telemetry.
No crashes or “unexpected landings” – Around 3 hours of flight time on all components, definitely no more than 5 hours.
Props: No chips. There are a few very minor cosmetic blemishes, but nothing that impacts flight or performance whatsoever
Landing gear: The landing gear skids provided by Gryphon were not nearly long enough. We replaced the stock CF skids (~18″) with some sturdy but lightweight 36″ aluminum skids. This created a lot more stability and confidence during takeoff and landing with the larger and more forgiving footprint.
Motors: There are a few minor scratches and cosmetic blemishes on 2 of the motors.
Frame Core: In pristine condition
